Conor McGregor has hit back at a follower who appeared to suggest the MMA star was ‘using’ drugs to get the size he is. You can see a clip of how he's looking here:

The fighter showed off his physique in a video he uploaded over the weekend, flexing for the camera while topless. 

Posting the video, he wrote: “The most powerful Twitter’s ever seen [sic]”

In response to the clip, blogger Matt Marenic asked: “What are you using? I want some of that,” alongside a laughing emoji. 

McGregor then quote-tweeted the post and quickly explained how he achieved his bulk.

The fighter attributed his size to drinking his own booze and eating Irish beef, writing: “Proper Twelve and Forged Irish Stout. Served alongside my own, organically grown, Irish beef, served on a hot stone. Tidl spray for pain.”

McGregor is getting back to peak condition after he broke his leg during his fight with Dustin Poirier in July 2021. 

While taking some time out of the ring, McGregor has managed to snag himself his first major acting role, appearing alongside Jake Gyllenhaal in a remake of the 1980s classic Road House

Amazon Studios announced the film on Twitter, saying: "Fight icon Conor McGregor expands his storied career into film to join Jake Gyllenhaal in the reimagining of the beloved classic, Road House."

Directed by Doug Liman, the film will be an Amazon Original, releasing to 240 countries and territories on Prime Video.

Other cast members include Billy Magnussen from The Survivor and Daniela Melchior of The Suicide Squad.

The film is being written by Anthony Bagarozzi and Chuck Mondry.

Despite deciding to step into acting, McGregor’s manager, Tim Simpsons, has insisted that the fighter is still on track for a return to fighting next year. 

He told MMA Junkie: "A fun little venture then switching back to climbing the mountain again. It fits in perfectly. He’s still on track for a big return next year, but this fits in perfectly in the meantime.”

He went on: "Acting wasn't something I think that Conor at the very front of his mind, right now he's still a world class athlete and his focus is being the best fighter in the world. But as the injury continues to heal and he continues to prepare for a comeback, the timing worked well. It's a great opportunity to do a big Hollywood blockbuster in meantime and he's going to kill it."
